First off, to anyone who says that gun confiscation isn't part of the agenda, here's Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal.
Here's the direct quote at the end of the video:
The state of Connecticut has a law that provides for siezure of weapons, literally siezure by police, without a warrant, of weapons from people who
pose a danger to themselves or others. There's then a court process that person can, in effect, get their guns or firearms back if they can convince
a judge that they have been wrongly siezed. So that kind of siezure law, unique to Connecticut right now, is one that can be broadened perhaps very
usefully to other states across the country.
It bears repeating, WITHOUT A WARRANT. This downgrades the 2nd Amendment from a "right" to bear arms, to a "privilege", and I imagine anyone who
has their guns confiscated will find it not only extremely slow and difficult to get them back, but very expensive as well.
But then of course, only those who are mentally ill will have their guns confiscated, right? But then who are the arbiters of mental illness, who
decides who is crazy and who is sane? Where is the line drawn? It's important to note that neither Adam Lanza nor James Holmes were diagnosed as
seriously mentally ill until after they went off the reservation, and while it sounds like a good idea to add a mental health provision to the
background checks already in place, it paves the way for government to not only refuse the sale of weapons, but also seize them from whomever they
please. While no one wants John Q. Nutcase to have access to firearms, we should tread very carefully when allowing federal agencies to be the final
judge of whether an individual is sane enough to have their second amendment right.
Make no mistake, mental health is the gateway to total gun control. At first it will only be the seriously mentally ill and those who have been
institutionalized who will have their rights stripped, but then it will expand:
You went to a shrink and got antidepressants after your wife left you? You're a potential threat, no gun for you.
Your parents divorced so you misbehaved in class and got sent to the school psychiatrist? You could go back to that school and shoot the place up,
sorry, no guns for you.
You believe the government orchestrated 9-11? Only a crazy person would believe such things, you're definitely not getting a gun.
You regularly visit conspiracy websites like ATS? You get the picture.
Notice how when somebody is labeled as a "conspiracy theorist" on television, is is almost always preceded by "crazy", "paranoid", or both.
So ask yourself then, are you "sane" enough to own a gun? If yours were confiscated tomorrow and you had to go before a judge, do you think the
judge would give them back? What if they read aloud your rantings on ATS in that courtroom during the proceedings, brought up your Facebook page and
showed e-mail correspondences, how likely are you to get your guns back now? As Homer Simpson learned, it's awfully hard to get that red "Insane"
stamp scrubbed off your hand.
Indeed.. This has happened before. It's happening in some places in the world now.
Two dialogs took place in two different countries, and although they took place three decades apart, they are astonishingly and chillingly
similar. The scene was all too common in psychiatric hospitals in the former Soviet Union and now in present-day China. The Soviet Communist Party
(CPSU) and Chinese Communist Party (CCP) use psychiatric confinement as a method to persecute and punish political prisoners.
The first dialog was between a psychiatrist and dissident General Petro Grigorievich Grigorenko in the former Soviet Union. General Grigorenko was
once involved in the Soviet Union's Great Patriotic War and other major battles. He had made meritorious contributions to the Soviet Red Army and
received distinguished honors. However, because he dared to criticize Soviet leaders and the Soviet regime, he was persecuted by the KGB several
When the doctor asked him whether he had changed his convictions, General Grigorenko replied, "Convictions are not like gloves; they are not
The doctor said, “Then, you will need to continue your

It's good they are taking them from the crazies and not the nuts.
They don't like the nuts either. Notice how defenders of the 2nd are always labeled gun "nuts". So if you believe you need firearms to keep
tyrannical government at bay, then you're a gun "nut", and definitely shouldn't own a gun.
Yes,Americans have every right to be gravely,gravely concerned about this one.Look at this site,as a prime example.I can come on here ON ANY GIVEN
DAY-and find at least one thread where-in the OP and members who agree,or offers input along similar lines,are dismissed out of hand as crazy.Often
its suggested (and THIS is TROUBLING- SUGGESTED IN ALL NICENESS AND SINCERITY) that the OP seek psychiatic help for mental illness,usually the
favorite,schizophrenha.Ive seen this especially in threads dealing with metaphysical subject matter,even in cases where its very clear that the OP is
a nice,decent Joe/Jill average,just the normal everyday person who happens to have had an inexplicable experience/sighting of something puzzling.All
your government would have to do,would be to offer cash rewards to those offering up info on "mentally unbalanced" gun owners...THEY WOULD'NT EVEN
NEED TO BAN GUNS.
according to the national institute of health...
about one in every four people in america have some type of mental disorder.... www.nimh.nih.gov...
start doing mental health evaluations for those who want to buy guns...how much you wanna bet that that number will skyrocket?? heck to an evaluation
of everyone, I bet they would find that the United States if just filled full of nuts!!
keep in mind, the person doing the evaluation has an interest in finding a problem, that way they can reschdule you for another hour long session at
$100 a pop and perscribe you drugs that might cause you to become a homocidal fruitcake ... it's more money for them!!!
and well, if the person you are talking to is like me, and you want your gun to hunt those poor innocent critters roaming around in the forest..well,
that's just plain cruel, and ya know, cruelity to animals is a sign of a sick, sick mind!!!
everywhere I turn now days, I am finding people with bipolar disorder, panic attacks, and on and on...
give them time, we will all be labeled as nuts!
that is because he's out of control and fanatical...
he does raise up some interesting issues though.
think of him as a canary in the coal mine, as long as he's out there acting the way he does hasn't disappeared, more than likely we won't be.
I'd like to see a basis for this argument of theirs.
It seems to me that there could be just as many "crazies" out there, who have had no previous or formal diagnosis from a professional of any kind,
nor are under the care of any psychiatrist or otherwise, and would have no reason to be, until the first episode where they "SNAP".
You simply can't protect everyone by saying the majority of the populace could be a danger to themselves or others.
ANYBODY can go postal at any given time with no prior history...it only takes one bad set of circumstances for somebody to have a psychotic break.
It's nothing more than this..and all of us know it...
And they are laughing, because many don't even realize what is going on,and those that do are powerless to stop it
Welcome to the one way train to hell...TICKET PLEASE !.
I think Alex is out of control 'cause he's had enough. He knew Piers wasn't going to let him get a word in edgewise so he just let him have it. I
see a lot of talk about AJ being a shill or controlled opposition, but I just don't buy. He's woken up too many people, including myself.
National Healthcare will probably take care of that. Everyone will examined and labeled depending on their political affiliation. Absurd you say? Yes
and no. We know all laws are abused. This will without a doubt be abused. It will take a few years but it will come. As far as the intent of the law
it sounds good. Everything Liberals do has unintended consequences. This one will be no different. Sad thing is that i agree mentally ill people
should be identified. I just don't think it should be as simple as taking their guns. They should get medical help. Sincere medical help. The cause
should be identified as well. That is however deeply rooted in society. For that to happen a lot of people would have to admit they were wrong.
There's going to be an increase of federal school grants to help diagnose mental illness, there will be a sharp decrease in medical physicians ... an
increase in prescription drugs .... its a win win for the corporations.
How convenient, they load up kids on psych drugs and when they snap, more money is appropriated to allow more Pharma repped shrinks into school so
they can push more kids onto drugs. When new mental health provisions are added to firearms background checks, most kids will have voided their second
amendment right by the time they hit middle school.
